School of Management to be presented with bronze award at government business scheme launch event

Members of the School of Management have been invited to No. 10 Downing Street on Thursday 5 June 2014 for the launch of the Government's Small Business Charter scheme.

The scheme, organised jointly by the Association of Business Schools and the Department of Business Innovation and Skills (BIS), will provide funding to promote greater collaboration between UK business schools and the SME sector.

The School of Management has been selected as one of a group of 'trailblazer' business schools who will help shape the scheme as it develops.  At the event on Thursday the School will be awarded a Bronze Level Charter which will both publicise Leicester's commitment to working with SMEs and will open access to BIS funding earmarked for SME-related activities.

The event at Downing Street will be hosted by the Rt. Hon. The Lord Young DL and Sir Peter Bonfield CBE FREng.
